After a walk along the river admiring all the art work on the way until we reach the Guggenheim.
Designed by the North American architect Frank Gehry, this unique museum on the riverside is the highlight of Bilbao since 1997. The building itself is an extraordinary combination of interconnecting shapes. Impressive limestone blocks contrast with curved architectural forms covered in titanium. Glass curtain walling provides the building with the light and transparency it needs.
An abstract ship shape, and the titanium panels resembling fish scales pay homage to the fact that the river was historically the economic hub of Bilbao
